January 6 Committee Subpoenas Michael Flynn and 5 More Trump Loyalists

HeadlineNov 09, 2021

An alleged Capitol rioter wanted by the FBI is seeking political asylum in Belarus. Evan Neumann is wanted for violent entry, disorderly conduct and assaulting and resisting law enforcement. On Monday, Neumann appeared on a Belarusian state TV segment titled “Goodbye, America.” 

Meanwhile, a House panel investigating the January 6 insurrection has subpoenaed six allies of former President Trump, including his disgraced former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Lawmakers want details on how the allies’ false claims of voter fraud whipped up the pro-Trump mob that attacked the Capitol. In the days before the riot, Michael Flynn publicly called for a military coup to overthrow the U.S. government and, during an Oval Office meeting, discussed seizing voting machines and invoking a national emergency.

On Friday, President Trump’s former acting assistant attorney general at the time of the insurrection, Jeffrey Clark, refused to testify to congressional investigators — though he did appear before the committee — citing Trump’s claims of executive privilege. In response, January 6 committee chair Bennie Thompson said he was weighing criminal contempt charges for Clark. Clark was a key player in Donald Trump’s efforts to enlist the Justice Department to sow doubt over results of the presidential election in Georgia.
